20. Re: Risen 2 Demo Jun 25, 2012, 23:18 Jerykk
Most enemies in Risen 2 are cannon fodder and you can simply click them to death (button-mashing). And every enemy (i.e. even the high level ones) can be defeated with little effort by using cheap hit and run tactics.

We must be playing different games because most enemies in my Risen 2 can break out of stunlocks by attacking you (and they typically do this after you've hit them 2-3 times). Now, if you can get behind an enemy and aren't being attacked by other enemies (which is pretty rare), you can do a good amount of damage before he can defend himself. Like I said earlier, positioning is important. For human enemies, button mashing won't do anything because they'll just block all your attacks and then counter. If you get hit and you're playing on Hard difficulty, you will take a significant amount of damage, especially if you haven't put a lot of points into Toughness. Some enemies (like the crocodiles or those big zombie orc dudes) can kill you in 1-2 hits.

As for useful skills, I imagine you didn't invest a lot into the Dirty Tricks or Voodoo skills. The parrot is tremendously useful for splitting up groups of enemies that would otherwise destroy you. The sand-in-the-eyes is great for preventing enemies from blocking, which lets you get some free hits. The voodoo power scepter (with sufficiently high Black Magic levels) is also great for softening up groups of enemies. And in most cases, enemies hang out in groups so crowd control is essential. Unless you're telling me that you can jump into a group of ghouls or bats and just button mash until they're all dead.
